Congratulations to our Battle of the Books Team!

There were 3800 students from all over the state at the Junior Beta Club Convention (public and private schools) last week, January 24-25.

Our Battle of the Books Team (Julia Baugh, Julia Hess and Harrison McGinnis) came in 1st place in their competition.  These three students spent the last 4 months reading 10 books and studying questions every week.  They took a written test to advance to the finals, which was in a “quiz bowl” type format.  They won decisively.   (It was quite exciting to watch.)

Our Quiz Bowl Team (Nicholas Arledge, Mary Callie Granger, Bubba McCurry, and Georgia Seay) advanced to the finals after a written test.  Only the top 4 teams get this far.  They did a great job with some very difficult questions.
